This is going to be hot! what are the wheels from?

The wheels are the stock '10 Camaro SS wheels with some lips from a spare set of Aoshima rims I have. I think they look awesome. I dont think Im gonna leave the center chrome, think Im gonna do a aluminum look with the polished lip.

The tires are both Aoshima, I think. I went with a slightly lower profile in the front to give it a somewhat staggered look. And Im considering halfing the lip depth on the front as well.

Any good hobby shops near you? Slim pickings here in Charlotte. Are you aware of the show in Clemmon NC tomorrow? The CKM is hosting their annual show and it is a good one- lots of great models and vendors.

Keep posting those builds!

I have a Hobby Lobby local and thats pretty much it. About 40 minutes away in Archdale is a place called KC Hobbies and its an awesome place. They have everything from styrene to detailing parts, paint, supplies, kits, etc. Its a little bit of a drive but I try to get what I need for a month or so when I go so its worth it. Ive heard of that show, I have a 50 Ford F1 Ive built that I wanted to enter but Im not sure if I can go or not yet. Ill have to post up my F1 for you guys. It was my first build and I put a TON of work into it. I dont really do box stock.

Man, they are freakin killer! I love the rims, would love to get my hands on a set of these. Welcome to the site, can't wait to see what you got in store for us with this build.

Thanks for the kind welcome and kind words, guys. I appreciate it. That said, an update. Doesnt seem like much of an update, but this was ALOT of work. I hope to have a rolling chassis by tonight. This is my first time building a frame from scratch, so comments and criticism is welcome.

The frame came out looking great, can't wait to see it with all the suspension and motor. What motor are you using? I am putting a corvette motor in my 69 camaro.

Its the L99 from the 10 Camaro SS. I originally wanted the Corvette LS, but I couldnt find a kit to sacrifice, lol.
